The Team

Jon Newman


Jon worked on-air and in management at a number of radio and TV news organizations in New Jersey, Tennessee and Virginia before joining The Martin Agency. He parlayed his media background into national media placements for countless clients, and that media relations focus is still a core competency at The Hodges Partnership. As the media landscape has changed, Jon’s focus now also includes social and digital media. His blog, Jon’s PR 1.5, chronicles the shift from old world PR pro to the new world of social and digital. He serves as a social media consultant for a number of clients, speaks publicly on the subject and teaches class on the topic at VCU. Jon is a graduate of Leadership Metro Richmond and has served on the boards organizations as diverse as the Henricus Historical Park and the Rockville Little League. He is a proud graduate of Rutgers University and can be seen there on home football weekends. Jon lives in Glen Allen, VA with his wife Kyra, children Sarah and Zachary and their lagotto romagnolo, Izzie.
